Game of Thrones 4K Ultra HD Review
Game of Thrones: The Complete Eighth Season   Game of Thrones 4K Ultra HD Review
(Leonard Buccellato)  12/4/2019 11:20 AM EDT
For a show that has won 260 awards, 59 of which were Emmys, and countless accolades and praise, it has received more than its fair share of slings and arrows, too. Most of which came during this last season.Game of Thrones was the darling of its fan base, not to mention most of the critics, as well. That is, until the rushed and much-maligned Seaso...

Why is it that the powers that be in Hollywood think that almost every novel should be turned into a major motion picture?  Sometimes the outcome is worthy of the original work but more often than not the results are less than stellar. Part of the problem is that novels usually have so many details that movies would need to be several hou... Read More

In 2012 Little, Brown and Company published a novel by Maria Semple called Where'd You Go, Bernadette. The book, which sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for a year, is told mostly through correspondence with some narration by Bernadette's teenage daughter Bee thrown in.  Annapurna Pictures bought the film's rights to adapt the stor...

I read a quote somewhere…"Music is heard with the ears, understood with the heart" and I thought how true that statement was.  There are so many styles of music worldwide but we don't always need to understand the language the song is sung in to sense that the lyrics are speaking to us personally. From Country to Rap to Heavy ... Read More

(Leonard Buccellato)  11/18/2019 5:07 PM EDT
In 1987 I was not ready for RoboCop. By then I had already experienced more than my share of Horror, Sci-Fi and Action films. Sitting in that darkened theater with my friends, watching the hyper-violent, and frenetically paced movie, I was struck by how it had so much more to say than just 'look at how bloody I am!'  RoboCop was making...

Middle school…the hormones, the bullying, the embarrassing situations that lurk behind every corner.  Walking that fine line between childhood and young adult can be difficult to navigate, which is why there have been numerous films highlighting the trials and tribulations of that tumultuous time in one's life.  Of course, none...

Is awards season here yet?  I know. I know. It's not enough that we welcome Thanksgiving and Christmas along with Halloween.  Now, I'm rushing us to nominations. The Peanut Butter Falcon, however, has some strong award contending performances.  Where to even begin…Touted as "a modern Mark Twain style adventure tale...a tw... Read More

In 2008 author Garth Stein's third novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, was published and sat on the New York Times Bestseller list for 156 weeks. In 2009 Universal Pictures bought the rights and planned for Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy) to play the main character of Enzo but the movie never had a director attached and was never ma...

Universal Soldier   Universal Soldier 4K Ultra HD Review
(Allison Skornick-Rose)  11/4/2019 9:31 PM EDT
The 1980s and early 1990s saw a growth in action films in the United States; a trend that seems to have continued well into recent years.  Stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, Rambo) and Bruce Willis (Die Hard) were becoming household names.  Car chases, gunfights, and hand to hand combat were the ...
